Former Rangers star notches assist for ISL side in crucial win

Former Rangers player Greg Stewart continued his fantastic run of form for his new side Jamshedpur as he grabbed an assist in a 3-2 victory over fellow ISL side NorthEast Utd.

Late drama ensued as NorthEast Utd grabbed an equaliser that looked like it would give the side an unlikely point until Ishan Pandita scored the winning goal deep into added time that allowed the side to jump up to third place and keep their title aspirations alive.

The Scotsman has settled into life well in India, having featured ten times for the ISL side so far this season, scoring five goals and providing five assists [Transfermarkt].

His recent highlights include a wonderful hat-trick against Oshida, before scoring a stunning freekick two weeks ago which took Twitter by storm.

It’s always nice to see former Rangers players doing well, especially the likes of Stewart, who did no wrong at the Ibrox side and gave his all every time he was called upon.

Still only 31, the forward may yet have another move in him, if his recent form is anything to go by, he should be playing at a higher level.
